Its success has been resounding, and the film has grossed more than 795 million dollars in total profit worldwide.

It seems certain the figure will continue to grow in the coming weeks, as there are still some stragglers who have not been able to go to the cinema to see the film, although most do plan to do so.
So, it is expected that the amount of money will continue to increase in the coming weeks.
With these figures, ‘Barbie’ has already become the third highest-grossing film so far in 2023, and could even take down a giant, the only success Marvel Studios has had this year.
There are three movies that are currently in the top of the highest grossing films of 2023, and they are ‘The Super Mario Bros. Movie’, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’ and ‘Barbie’.
The screen adaptation of Nintendo’s video games takes top spot, grossing 1bn dollars, a tremendously high figure.
Meanwhile, the third instalment of the Marvel Studios trilogy, starring Chris Pratt and directed by James Gunn, came in at 845m dollars worldwide.
It is not yet clear when the Mattel doll-based movie will be able to surpass ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3’.
What is very clear is that, at the moment, they are only around 49m dollars from achieving the feat.
If ‘Barbie’ manages to add that amount in the coming weeks, it will move up one place in the list of highest grossing films of the year, placing second.
